    Why that nick ?

    Why did you choose your particular nick ?

    I will start the ball rolling.

    I chose TiBikeGuy because

    Ti = my Litespeed titanium MTB
    Bike = Bicycle
    Guy = that's me

    Contango is the price difference between a commodity price for spot delivery and the commodity price for forward delivery. That doesn't really have anything to do with much, except I thought it sounded kinda cool.

    I make art and I live in Arkansas. My Avatar comes from the video "Only in Kenya" on the Weebls Stuff website. It's a wonderfully loopy animation, especially if you need a boost when working too long.

    Mine was given to me by the Dalai lama when I was looping for him over in Tibet. The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one -- big hitter, the Lama -- long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? "Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga". So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you log onto to Bike Forums, you will be known as jsharr."
    So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

    It's a nickname my Father gave me as a toddler. I've used it ever since.
    I'm not pokey, but I'm certainly not speedy... sorta half-fast, I guess...

    My screen name is obvious.
    The avatar is the cover of an 80s punk album--and it lends itself well to photochopping funny hats and such.

    Being five foot seven, I really ain't that big at all but the Prince of Nigeria assures me that it is not the size of the dog in the fight that counts but the size of the fight in the dog.
    I love pho long time.

    I picked mine because it's my main hobby and it requires no explanation. I do like this thread though.

    G is for the many places I "go" to.
    I is for all the places i "itch".
    T is the "type" of shirts I wear.
    A is for "all" the times you hurt me.
    R is for the "rich" women that won't talk to me.
    Z is for the "zebra" you rode in on.
    A is the first letter of the "alphabet".
    N x Y = X

    When I first came to this site I was a student at Clemson. Since I remembered the password when I came back to seek out some info I’m still using it.
